Council Complaints

Do you feel that the Council has failed to take reasonable action on a planning or enforcement matter?

Attwells can offer proactive advice for approaching the Council to allege maladministration. If a Council complaint is successful, it may result in certain action being taken, including the possibility of an award of compensation. Therefore, it’s certainly a route worth pursuing with experienced legal backing from our team.

We can help you make a Council complaint, and/or advise on and prepare a formal maladministration complaint to the Local Government Ombudsman. We have the skills to cover both the legal and planning aspects of any case.

We serve clients both near and far, from local areas of Colchester, Ipswich & London. All our services are designed for individuals, developers and commercial clients.
